The New Greek Cinema continues to deliver offbeat works that reflect on the moral and social failures of contemporary Greece. This seriocomic film, reminiscent of Aki Kaurismäki (Le Havre), is a notable example. A middle-aged policeman, tired of his daily grind and disgusted by the corruption of the criminal-justice system, decides it’s not only less trouble, but also less unfair, to release his suspects than to try to force confessions out of them. An accidental killing puts him in contact with a sympathetic cleaning woman.
